Domaine de Bellene is the creation of Nicolas Potel – the son of the legendary Gérard Potel of Domaine Pousse d’Or. Potel is a big name in Burgundian winemaking, and he is known for constantly challenging the borders of winemaking in Burgundy.

This wine has an extremely floral nose, with a lovely array of spices and red fruit aromas. The palate is earthy and powerful, with hints of mocha coffee. This is a quite powerful Vosne Villages that will evolve beautifully throughout the years.

The Quartier des Nuits' plot covers 31 acres and was planted in 1927. It is very close to the famous Clos de Vougeot and Echezeaux. Since it has been part of Domaine de Bellene, the plot has been converted into organic farming.

About the vintage: The 2020 vintage is absolutely excellent, lauded as 'almost a dream vintage' by top UK wine buyers and something that you should snap up while you can – especially since it’s clear that there’s going to be very little wine coming out of Burgundy next year (and at much higher prices!)
It is abundantly clear that 2020 produced some magnificent wines, with exceptional balance, freshness and full fruit maturity, yet that also remain very Burgundian in style. There is very little not to like.

From a tiny, 0.3 hectare parcel planted in 1927, this nearly century-old Vosne vineyard has yielded here in 2020 a wine of very sweet, ripe and concentrated perfume. I love the silky, refined texture, so typical of wines from this village, yet also the underlying structure and depth - while seemingly lithe and light on entry, the flavours persist admirably, stretching into minutes. It's clearly very ripe and powerful overall, with 14% alcohol declared, and will need another 3-5 years minimum in bottle to enter its groove. Very fine wine. Tasted May 2022.
